Prevent hotspots with the heat diffuser from Norpro.
Prevent hotspots with the Heat Diffuser from Norpro. This tool helps to distribute heat evenly and keeps heat-sensitive items like rice, oatmeal, milk, gravies, and braises from burning. It also helps with melting chocolate and caramel. The holes in the diffuser distribute the heat throughout the tin tool so it hits the entirety of the base of your pans to nearly eliminate the chance of burning. It also protects glass and porcelain from overheating and cracking. Other benefits are its wooden handle to avoid burns and its leather hanging band to keep it within arms reach!
